I was feeling fine..............

Just took my bike for a spin after a clean and tweak, had a good pull on the brakes and the front cable pulled through the canti, under inspection now realise the thread has gone :twisted: has been fine until then, even on the FOD ride down the hemorage trail.

I am a bit peed off but glad it happend now rather than tomorrow, I will have to have a dig for another pair of canti's for the front :roll: I hate running odd brakes :?

See you all tomorrow

Got plenty of spares if you need anything. Just been out for a spin along the beach. Neck feels ok-ish now but am pretty dosed up on ibuprofen. Just have to do the same for tomorrow :D

I should probably let people know that I'm not going to this now. Been laid up with man flu for the past few days which means that I've managed to finish building three bikes but won't be riding for a few days more :(
